 A Comment about "Athletic Scholarships"
Roselle Catholic High School does not award athletic scholarships. The NJSIAA bans the awarding of athletic scholarships. Any student who claims otherwise runs the risk of forfeiting any  financial assitance he/she might have received under our scholarship or financial need programs.
